Well, it ended up working out for the best anyway. Being that i work from home now, and have used my car maybe 15-20 times max since March. And us RWD folks are gonna get better Model Ys than the day 1 folks, dual pane windows, etc.
Just gonna leave this right here.
Still waiting on my 7 seater that was supposed to have delivery started already. Huge grain of salt especially based on chat convo with sales rep whom some seem to know less than Reddit.
Like other people, I have far fewer places to go this year. Luckily my old Mazda is still running well so this delay is not all that bad for me. The car we end up getting will just be better. I'm the type who doesn't trade in often. For instance I've had the Mazda since 2004 and my truck since 2002. So I never wanted one of the early Ys.
It is so strange and sad that they changed gears and went with the standard range - the exact opposite of their stated intentions. For me, I have no interest in a car with max range of 244 miles. Certainly not for north of 40k. I guess I'll hang in there a while and wait for the LR but it doesn't look very promising now.
Aren't the offerings in teh same price range from other manufacturers less than 244 miles?
I think this is exactly it. Just like lowering the price of the Model S to $69,420 after Lucid announced the price of their entry-level Air, I think Tesla is reacting to the ID.4 and Mach-E, which have versions that start with about this range and about this price (before incentives). Perhaps they feel that the Tesla name, tech and Supercharging network will entice some of those potential buyers. And this is part of the reason the stock continues to 'pop'.Aren't the offerings in teh same price range from other manufacturers less than 244 miles?
